Shortt and Epic Marks First Year Anniversary

I want to thank you.
 
Whether you’re a client who shared Shortt and Epic’s vision, a family member who believed in me, a friend who offered sound advice, or someone who liked Shortt and Epic’s Facebook page – you helped make the first year in business a great one and I feel so fortunate to have had so much support. 
 
It’s hard to believe it has been one year since the launch of Shortt and Epic. And what a year it’s been!  Three viral videos, two honors, numerous news articles, and over 1 million views later, we’ve already outgrown our website.
 
To mark Shortt and Epic’s one year anniversary we’re launching a new website. A website that not only looks better, but is also easier to use. It now looks great regardless of what device it’s on – be it mobile, tablet or desktop. Visitors can filter our work based on different categories such as time lapse and live action. And we’ve added a blog section so we have a place to share our and our clients’ successes. Let us know what you think.
 
I’m looking forward to another great year. We already have several very exciting projects lined up and we can’t wait to create more magic.  
 
Happy Holidays,
 
Dave Shortt
Owner and Founder of Shortt and Epic

Apple uses Shortt and Epic’s Tahoe video to launch iPad mini

We were honored when Apple contacted us in July with the hopes of using our Tahoe time lapse in their upcoming, top-secret product launch. Three months later, that top-secret product turned out to be the new iPad mini.

Apple used the video to demonstrate the quality of retina screen technology during its keynote address and in their official product video on their website. Since its launch in December 2011, the 2 min Tahoe time-lapse has been viewed over 250k times and was selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick.

Shortt and Epic on the cover of Huffington Post Canada

Shortt and Epic’s work for the Dogwood Initiative garnered significant attention from local and national media, including the front page of Huffington Post Canada. 

The 2 minute video, titled  ‘*This is not an Enbridge animation‘, made waves by highlighting Enbridge’s omission of islands in the Douglas Cannel – the proposed tanker route for the Northern Gateway. 

The video uses stunning time lapse video to show the actual locations of the proposed pipeline. “The idea was to show the reality of what’s at risk while deconstructing Enbridge’s misleading approach” said Shortt and Epic Owner, Dave Shortt.

 Since its launch in August,  the video has been viewed by over 60k people, resulted in 5000 new petition signatures, earned a Merit through the Lotus awards and won People’s Choice award at the Paws and Claws Film Festival.
